Fight like girls: How gun ban zealots wage real war on women

Fight like girls? Heck, yes. Freedomworks’ Kristina Ribali got the ball rolling.

Any genius want to explain to me why Chicago and DC aren't crime free? #gunbans

Keep reading this feed … RT @KristinaRibali: Next few tweets will explain why I'm an ardent supporter of the 2nd amendment.

Indeed. The truth is something that is actually empowering for everyone, not just women. Kristina went on to tell her story in a string of powerful tweets.

I had a stalker for five years. Restraining order: Check Do not contact order: Check

We spent thousands of dollars putting up security lights, obscured glass, even got an attack dog.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

Guess what? He still tried to enter our backyard and our home.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

He was caught no less than four times trying to enter into our yard.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

He was continually arrested, slapped on the wrist with trespassing charges and released in a matter of days / weeks.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

It was not until I chambered a round in our shotgun (unmistakeable sound) at the window.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

I also testified in court against him. Let the judge and the stalker know that I would protect myself with deadly force if necessary.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

He continued to prey on other women.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

He continued to stalk / peep / trespass and violate the lives of countless other victims.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

He did not continue to stalk me.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

Yes, I'm a tall female. I'm no waif. But I'm certainly not going to be a sitting duck and wait for the cops to save me.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

I found out later that this stalker was a known meth user.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

Do you think any female could stop a predator hopped up on meth without a firearm? If you do you're an idiot.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

This is why I carry. I'm a mom. I have an obligation to protect myself and my children.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

I live in a small town with good police officers. They could not save me.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

The Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness requires that I be allowed to protect that life.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

I was also attacked when I was 17.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

I could not own a gun then. The only thing that saved me is a well placed kick to the groin.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

Women: Protect yourself. Learn basic self defense and if you'd shoot it, carry a gun.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

If you wouldn't shoot it: Don't carry a gun! It'll be used against you. Know yourself. Learn your limits.

— Kristina Ribali (@KristinaRibali) July 24, 2012

Brava, Kristina.

Not too long ago, Spartanburg, S.C., Sheriff Chuck Wright got in some trouble for saying similar things. See, while the Left was telling women raped at Occupy camps to hush up, Sheriff Wright tried to empower women by telling them to arm themselves. Sheriff Wright’s remarks came on the heels of a situation similar to Kristina’s. The attempted rapist was a career cretin and repeat offender. He had been convicted of more than 20 crimes going back decades, but kept getting out of jail; leaving him free to continue to terrorize people again and again. Sheriff Wright was fed up and tried to help women protect themselves: “I want you to get a concealed weapons permit. Don’t get Mace. Get a firearm.”

Talk about real empowerment!

“Feminists,” of course, were up in (non-gun-holding) arms over the Sheriff’s advice. Guns are bad! Since “feminists” only claim they are For The Women ™, but they are actually anything but, they didn’t get it. You see, arming women and giving them the tools to defend themselves puts women in a higher position. Instead of being concerned with a rapist’s “rights,” those who truly respect and care for women are more concerned with, you know, the women.

The Left, on the other hand, think that women should just suck it up and shut up. What’s a little assault or rape if it is for an anti-gun agenda? The real war on women is perpetrated by those who believe that women should not even have a way to fight back to prevent a violent assault. Because, guns are icky. Or something.

They’d rather have victims than empowered women.

Contrary to the beliefs of the willfully ignorant like Bette Midler, Ellen Barkin, Nanny Bloomberg and their fellow travelers, the world doesn’t consist of fairy dust and kitten whiskers. And it is just not possible for the police to protect absolutely everyone at all times, nor to stop every crime, no matter what. Citizens, including women, must be able to protect themselves. And conservative women on Twitter intend to do so.

Many more are now weighing in and some are using the #whywomenpack hashtag.

Reading @KristinaRibali 's stream. & remember ladies, Castle Rock vs Gonzales established the police have no obligation to protect you!

Hi @danrodricks. Go read tweets in the #whywomenpack feed. Now tell me why women shouldn't be able to defend themselves… #MdPolitics

— Brian Griffiths (@BrianGriffiths) July 24, 2012

@michellemalkin @BetteMidler Because I can't afford armed bodyguards. #whywomenpack

That’s empowerment, baby.
